Here are some tips to ensure your road trip is smooth sailing:

Plan your route

Long weekends may involve road closures, maintenance, or construction, so it’s best to check the news for updates. Navigation apps will prove helpful during this time. The holiday rush may also affect traffic, so beat other travelers by leaving earlier, if possible.

Check your car

A vehicle in top condition will be your best friend during a long journey. Ensure your tires are aligned and balanced, car fluids and battery are secure, and lights and turn signals work. Inspect your car before the trip to ensure everyone’s safety.

Pack essentials

Long drives call for ample snacks to keep hunger at bay and a steady water supply to prevent dehydration. Bring essential medications and a first aid kit for any untoward incidents.

Go cashless

Long lines at ATMs during holidays are inevitable. Embrace hassle-free travel by going cashless. Opt to pay through bank transfers, QR codes and the like.

Use Easytrip and Autosweep RFIDs

Streamline your tollway transactions with RFID payments. By eliminating the need for cash transactions, drivers can breeze through tollways, avoiding long lines and unnecessary delays.
